Before starting install, measure the gap between your wheel and the brake caliper. You will need 1/8 inch clearance.

* Some brake pads have retainer wires that may interfere with proper caliper cover installation. Use pliers to bend and atten these wires so that they do not protrude past the front of the caliper. This will not damage or aect your brakes.
